all caps

Hello,

I'm setting some text about a book that has a title with a word in all caps (example: UNTOLD: The Story Not Told). What is the best way to do this? My thoughts are that in headings it would be all caps just like the above, but in text UNTOLD would be U[smallcaps]ntold[/smallcaps] (that is, Untold with the "ntold" part in small caps, mixing the case). I also considered just ignoring the all-caps aspect in the text (referring to it as "Untold: The Story Not Told" in the text, but I'm not sure I can get away with that.

Thanks for your help!
Justin

Dear all,

this is my first attempt at type creation as an amateur type designer.
I would love to hear from you,

Do not hesitate to criticise!

A clean, simple font used by Fake Empire Productions. Any idea what it is?

Hi!
My name is Abel Martín and that is my first post at Typophile :)

My question is about that wood type that i have in my letterpress cabinet.
I would like know the name and maybe some about the history...

Thanks!

I was trying to figure out what the "Alex" and "Celebrate" font is as well as the "SANDERS" and "University of South Florida". Also looks like the "6:00 PM" is also different. Thanks to all those that help me with this!

Hi all,

just wondered if anyone could identify this college-style sans-serif. Thankyou!

any ideas? the top of the A is a little unusual...

Hi y'all,
please help me id-ing this monospaced sans serif font.
Thanks a lot!

Please help me identify typefaces of this sort!

(I think the closest I've come to is Emigre's "Brothers" typeface, but I think that's quite a bit too far off).

Any help or suggestions of similar faces would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks very much,
Best,
PS

The P is a different font than the rest. I fear the P may be custom, meaning I'll have to recreate it. But the rest should be identifiable somehow. Again, thanks!

Retro sans font?

It seems retro-ish because of the low crossbar.

Please help ID this font. It is very close to Caecilia, but extended.

Greater Albion have jusst released two new families through Fontspring and Myfonts:

Corsham:
Corsham was inspired by traditional stonemason's engraved lettering designs. Designed to be used alone, or in combination with our Corton family, ithas wonderfully lively air, with distinctive lively serifs and beautifully swashed downstrokes. Four faces are offered-regular bold and black weights as well as a condensed form. All faces include a range of Opentype features, including ligatures and old-style numerals. The Corsham faces merge 'olde-worlde' charm with fun character, yet remaining clear and legible for text use.

Metropole:

Any suggestions for a good font to use on formal invitations for the sections requiring all caps (for example, post/zip codes) where the main body of the text is set in a script - such as Bickham Script - in order to avoid this (see image)?

Any help gratefully received!

Thanks

Pete

No name for this bugger yet. It's my first attempt at creating a full alphabet plus punctuation for an actual font release! Inspiration came from a custom logotype I created that was not commissioned, it's a great excuse to dive into FontLab and see what it's all about. This will be an all caps display font, released at some point this year. Here is a screenshot of the regular and outline versions. I've attached a PDF for closer inspection.

Remember those 1970s science fiction dramas which had such charming 'futuristic' sets and backdrops? Remember the intriguing 'future' lettering and signage the set designers would devise-often coupled with interesting 'futuristic' spellings? Movella, Greater Albion's latest release, is something of a new departure for us and is a family of three typefaces inspired by that design ethos. The three faces- regular, italic and the 3d solid form - are all capitals faces which combine a feeling of 'retro-futuristic' design with easy legibility.

Movella can now be found on Myfonts and Fontspring. Here'a sample of it in action:

Greater Albion Typefounders has just launched 'Corton' a pair of display Roman small capitals faces.

Corton was inspired by the traditional lettering on a gravestone in an English village. While that might sound a rather solemn beginning, Corton has wonderfully lively air, with distinctive lively serifs and beautifully swashed downstrokes. Two faces are offered-regular and titular. Between them they are ideal signage and display faces, merging 'olde-worlde' charm and fun character.

Corton is currently available through Myfonts, and is offered at a 35% introductory discount.

Ciseaux Matisse is a font family with 4 styles inspired by Henri Matisse's Drawing with scissors.

The Cut-Out style is a paper-cutout, boxed is the paper background. Both Linear and Boxed Linear have no bezier handles so they are more aggressive.

As drawing with scissors implies, all characters are cut by hand. With only uppercase letters, this font is designed for editorial use.

Hi there!

Anyone recognise the font used for "merch"? Looking for that font or something very similar?

This font family remind me DIN but more rounded in proportion.
What this font?

Thanks!
